About Steadfast61
Joined February 2015
My name is Adrian and I live in the beautiful town of Bridgetown on the beautiful Blackwood River, some 3 hours South West of Perth in Western Australia. I am English by birth and Australian by choice, having emigrated Down Under in 1981.

From my home office I run my own business - Accounts Receivable Solutions - specialising in outsource credit control and Credit Training. Unfortunately I am not busy every hour of every week and so wanted to find something stimulating to get involved in. That is where Wealthy Affiliates comes in.

I stumbled across Kyle's site via Ian Pribyl of NoMoreBSReviews and have become keen to learn more about affiliate marketing. From what I've seen so far it looks as though it could be great fun.

My interests (passions - my wife calls them obsessions!) include soccer, rugby union (now watching only!), English Literature, wine, communications, my two pussy cats and oh lots of other things so I am hopeful of finding a suitable niche to involve myself in.

Since writing the above introduction, I have become a Premium member with a website called englishwordmeanings.com, which looks at the Beauty and Meaning of Words in a non-formal, personal way. Have a look and leave a comment on the website if you feel so inclined. Thank you.

Update: I have been undertaking the excellent Bootcamp course and looking at the super efforts of a lot of WA Members in producing websites that promote WA. The quality is remarkably good. So, being one myself, I wondered, could I produce something for seniors looking to make money online?

So I am now working on onlinelearnandearn.com. It's in its infancy as I work through the Bootcamp and hope to develop it and have good affiliate links and, of course, eventually, income. If anyone wishes to visit it and leave a comment that would be ever so nice!

Hello Adrian,♫Welcome! I am so pleased you found WA. Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun at WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training on every issue I had problems with myself. And I share all my interesting findings on my blog space. I have listed them on a blog for you. When you type in “Blogs top rated by Loes” into the search bar on top, you'll find my goodies under Training. I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2018. See you around, Greetings Loes

You know, I love this whole process of creating a business and its associated website building. Going through the learning provided by WA and you forum members, and gaining so much knowledge and pleasure in doing so is just brilliant.

It does seem however that when one has begun learning about a particular element of the process, say content writing, SEO, keyword searching etc., a real problem sets in.

That problem is tangential side-tracking.

Tangential side-tracking is where one finds links to other incredibly interesting blogs or articles that, whilst supporting the main learning process, actually drag one away from the central issue. Then, damn it, those tangential articles have their own fascinating links to related matters which simply have to be read too.

So, all of a sudden, one becomes lost - dazed and confused - in the quagmire of advice, support and knowledge and, quite simply going round in circles.

I have learned about affiliate marketing, Amazon FBA, eCommerce, eBooks, You Tube videoing, content marketing email marketing, You Tube marketing, T-shirt design, Udemy, other training programs and on and on.

I love it all. But I sometimes wonder whether I'll ever accomplish anything, will reach my goals - whatever they are now, 'cos they keep changing!

Anyone else feel the same?

Thanks all for the welcoming comments or, more correctly as lynnsam61 has guessed - welcoming back. (Hey I've just realised lynnsam61 and I have the same surname: 61! How about that!)

I've had to take quite a bit of time away from WA as I wasn't able to devote the time to participating which made the Premium membership rather costly, particularly when you take into account the exchange rate from USD to AUS$. My business and moving house has taken up a lot of my time.

But now I am able to devote more time to building this aspect of my business and am looking forward to starting new, more product-driven content sites.

So, again, thanks all. I hope to catch up with you as I get my feet back under the table.

Hi Adrian,
I stumbled on your name and checked out your website. I love the subject. Some of my favourite words are obfuscate, ameliorate, and ubiquitous because their sound reflects the feeling of their meaning. Another would be "rehypothecation" which is what those rascal banksters do with your money. For that matter, add "rascal" to my list. I'll continue to read your site.

Thank you for viewing the site Stephanie and for following. Aren't words great? They can conjure up so many images and feelings.

Your website Best Investing Software is informative (did you men for your title to be Best Investing Softwar?) but I am more intrigued with your other two. Are you planning to develop them? Please keep me posted on them - I particularly enjoyed your "Who Am I?" page on The Club site.

If you will permit, I should like to follow you in return.

Adrian

Hi Adrian, Yes, Best Investing Software was my first web creation. However it quickly evolved away from a software selling site toward an exposee of the corrupt practices of the financial sector. Oops. I seem to have derailed myself on that one. I now intend to focus almost exclusively on the other two. My intentions for them are much clearer.
I'm honoured to be followed and in so doing you will be notified of further developments of those sites. Best wishes.

Hey Adrian, how's everything coming along now that you've been a member for a few days? I hope you've found your way into the "Get Started Here" training toward the top of the menu on the left and that you're enjoying yourself so far!

Some people gravitate towards the "Affiliate Bootcamp" training which is something I don't recommend right off of the bat if you've never made money in internet marketing before. I know that may be a bit confusing, but if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!

pribs Premium
It looks like you're moving along very nicely, Adrian! I see you have your profile all setup and hopefully you've been engaging with the community a bit!


I'd love to get to know you and your income goals better so that I can do my best to set you up for success. Would you mind taking a minute to chime in and share here: What Are Your "Money" Goals?


I keep a pretty close watch on that thread (and so do the co-founders of Wealthy Affiliate, Kyle and Carson), so posting your income goals there will give us a much better idea of what we can do to help you!


And of course, let me know if there's anything I can help you with Adrian :)

Hey Adrian! I wanted to start you off with a quick note that could SIGNIFICANTLY impact your success with Wealthy Affiliate. Read this entire message if you are serious about being successful in internet marketing (it's lengthy, but I'm not joking when I say that this advice could make or break your entire internet marketing career):


1) You'll need to work consistently and hard. There's going to be a lot to learn in the beginning and you may feel overwhelmed at a point, but keep pressing forward and you'll make it through. It happened to me and every other successful internet marketer at some point, and the only way to become successful in this industry is to push past that overload whenever you get there.


Do yourself a favor and commit to a number of hours that you can work each week right now. It doesn't have to be massive, but it should be more than 10 between evenings and weekends at least. Just remember the more you work each week, the faster you'll learn and draw closer to success.


After you've picked the number of hours you can work each week, commit to working that much for AT LEAST six months - a year would be better. You won't see results immediately in this industry, and being consistent is the key. Pick a number of hours you can work each week, then work those hours for at least six months. It's something you've probably never done in this industry, and this advice alone will make a HUGE difference in your chances at succeeding with internet marketing as long as you take it seriously and STICK WITH IT.


2) I recommend starting off with this training (which you can access with your free account): Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1)


It just scratches the surface of the MASSIVE amount of helpful content in WA, but you'll get a good "feel" for the teaching style here and begin to see the power of all of the great things they're teaching here at Wealthy Affiliate.


3) DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE COMMUNITY. Two of the best places you can go to for help when you get stuck are the "Live Chat" and the "Classrooms" sections located on the panel to your left. You'll find direction and inspiration through the community here, which is one of the reasons I recommend WA so highly.


4) Finally, you don't ever have to upgrade to the premium account here at Wealthy Affiliate if you don't want to. You'll have limited access using your free account for as long as you wish. HOWEVER, if you're serious about internet and affiliate marketing then you should invest in the premium membership for AT LEAST one month. You could look back on it years from now and see it as a pivotal moment in your internet marketing career, but you never will if you don't at least give it a try.


Check it out for a few days though - you don't need to upgrade right now. Make sure it's a good fit for you, and if you upgrade within the first 7 days you'll receive your first month's membership at more than 50% off. I keep my membership active and recurring every month so I can be here for the people I refer like you, so realize that I'm putting my money where my mouth is here!


On top of that, if you upgrade to a premium membership at the discounted rate within the first 7 days I have a special bonus EXCLUSIVE to people that join WA through me and upgrade within the first week of creating their free account. This bonus will show you how to be twice as successful with WA or any other legitimate internet marketing program out there and gives you some very valuable video lessons (which I recorded for you personally, of course) to ensure you get off to the right step in your internet marketing business.


I keep a close watch on the list of people that upgrade from starter to premium, so I'll send the bonus your way within 24 hours. If you upgrade and don't receive it within that time frame for some reason, just post on my WA profile and let me know!


I don't offer that bonus so you'll spring for the membership and make me more money, I offer the bonus just in case you needed that tiny "push" to make sure you invest in this training because I know that you will use for the rest of your IM career and it could change your life. I've referred hundreds of people now and I have NEVER had anyone tell me they were dissatisfied.


Best of luck to you! You're about to embark on a journey that could change your life forever, so make sure you take it seriously, put in the time and effort, and expect great things in return!


You know where to find me,
Ian Pribyl
